    Agree with the view put in the newspaper today that they have basically thrown a hand grenade at the AFL and NRL and walked away. The head of the ACC, John Lawler, said this was about intelligence gathering, not evidence gathering.

    In those circumstances it seems reprehensible that the ACC in concert with the government would make these allegations, tarnishing the names of clubs, codes and players and undermining peoples' confidence in Australian sport without any evidence.

    What should have happened was they should have passed on their intelligence to the appropriate authorities and told them to gather evidence and start knocking on doors once they were able to charge people.

    Just grandstanding from the hapless Kate Lundy

    Think we need to get rid of Kate Lundy and bring back Kate Ellis to this portfolio:

    Grandstanding eh? The ACC apparently in cohorts with the Sports Minister eh?

    Tell Shane Flanagan and the Sharks. And sadly, there'll be more to come.

    5 teams going to come over heavy scrutiny apparently. Cronulla, Manly, Essendon, Geelong and Gold Coast AFL.

    Paraphrasing an article in the herald but if any club has 2 or more players convicted of a drug charge the WADA can ban that club from participating. The the AFL or NRL refuses to comply they become an internationally unrecognized comp and lose all government funding. Cronulla have 14 players fighting charges.
